    When the time comes, I might get my eyes done. I've had laser treatments to reverse sun damage and rosacea. Also enjoyed a shot of botox or restlyn here & there. I'm not opposed to cosmetic procedures, but I don't understand some people's obsession with them.

    I sometimes joke that I want to get my crooked nose fixed (injury at birth), but I'm only ever joking.

    I'm planning on getting a series of chemical peels this winter and maybe some more laser vein removal for my rosacea.

    Don't forget 75-year-old Joan Rivers. Her before and after shots:

    The first picture is Jocelyn Wildenstein. Apparently her billionaire husband loved wild animals (like the lions and tigers found on his private game reserve) so during a low point in their marriage Jocelyn decided to make herself look like a "wild cat" to spice up their marriage. So I read somewhere.

    PS Joan Rivers is FABULOUS.

    I have been under the plastic surgeons knife a few times. Had no option icon_sad.gif

    I think it depends on what you want done.

    I don't have feelings toward elective cosmetic plastic surgery one way or another, except to note that there seems to be only about a 50% chance of improved aesthetics, based on what I've seen (admittedly an unscientific sample). I have a theory that there's a certain dynamic between some doctors and patients that "pushes the envelope" a bit too far. I think the best plastic surgery is the one where people say... "hey, you look good -- did you do something to your hair?"

    My favorite quote on the topic is from John Waters, when asked how he felt about Los Angeles. He said he often was frightened of people's faces because "they look like Picasso paintings."

    So if you're going to do it, spend the money and get the best!

    Plastic people get plastic surgery. Unless you have had some terrible chemical accident, skip the surgery.

    What crap! Gay men tend to be shallow and visually oriented. If you've got a nose like Cyrano's, a pocket of fat that won't go away despite diet and exercise, or look your age, plastic surgery with realistic expectations might give you enough time in a bar for the other guy (who's probably also been tucked) to get to know your personality. Why handicap yourself?

    Men in my family tend to get really jowly as we age. While I do think it can be easily overdone, I definitely plan to get my neckline tightened up if it starts to look like my face is melting off my head. It can be done conservatively and look natural.

    Mostly because the people I have seen with plastic surgery are disgusting and fools. First, they always look like they had plastic surgery, so the point of repairing some perceived inadequacy is out the door when it looks like they paid 5 bucks for a Mexican tuck.
    Then, you get the freaks who seek some sort of surgical perfection, but instead get a face that does not show emotion and that same plastic look that dolls have.
    Again, I just think plastic faced people are a giant massive disgusting red flag of sadness.

    I've had a chemical peel done to my chest to get rid some of the smallers scars from my heart surgery. Very happy with it

    I will be getting a tummy tuck, rhinoplasty, and vocal cord surgery. I already have my surgeons for each procedure.

    one thing i could add to this is aint it a shame that these plastic surgeons are using their skill for "cosmetic/aesthetic reasons" when the skill they have could be used for "reconstructive" purposes.
